Ya'know, I'd say that what's needed is some rather obvious tutorials
on how to get a web page source and how to deal with fill-in forms, as
that seems to be the common thing people want to deal with :)
Doing POSTs is pretty much a pain. The way I ended up doing it was
setting the various flags, sticking the postData in the
request->anchor->document field, creating a PostCallback function
which just pushed the document down the stream.
Big pain, if ya ask me. ;)
